The next instalment in the popular Fable RPG series, Fable 3, is going to be released locally for the Xbox 360 on the 29th of October 2010.
 
Within Fable 3 gamers will get to lead a rebellion against their character’s brother, the evil King Logan, to rise up as the new ruler of Albion. The game boasts an incredible selection of voice talents including Simon Pegg, John Cleese and Sir Ben Kingsley.
 
Cleese takes on the role of the gamers’ trusty butler and confidant, Jasper, whilst Sir Ben Kingsley plays the leader of the mountain dwellers, Sabine and Star Trek and Shaun of the Dead star Simon Pegg is voicing the soldier Benn Finn. Stephen Fry also makes a return to the series as Reaver, the egotistical marksman that has been blessed with eternal youth.
 
“The ‘Fable’ franchise has always been recognised for its unique take on drama, morality, and of course, humor,” said Yvette van Rooyen, Xbox product and marketing manager in South Africa.
 
“We’re taking this to the limits in Fable 3 by bringing on a star-studded cast that includes Sir Ben Kingsley, John Cleese and Simon Pegg, who truly understand what it takes to bring characters to life in complex ways and add new dimensions of blockbuster entertainment.”
 
“This is my first experience voicing a video game, so what drew me to it was the team, how committed they are, how well organized everything is and how beautiful the game is,” said Sir Ben Kingsley.
 
“One of the things that’s missing from a lot of video games is good writing and good voice work. I think this one has a wonderful mythology and it’s witty and it’s engrossing,” added Simon Pegg.
 
Fable 3 will be available in a standard edition for a recommended retail price of R699 as well as a limited collector’s edition carrying an RRP of R799. Fans of the series will also have the opportunity to get a preview of the game at the Xbox 360 stand at rAge over the coming weekend.
